EU debate: London’s place in a new world

Start date: June 27, 2018 5.30pm registration

With just under a year to go until we officially leave the EU and Theresa May’s strategy seems to be ‘slow and steady wins the race’, even if we aren’t sure what ‘winning’ looks like.

With 29 March 2019 getting ever closer, business owners are considering how to remain agile and respond quickly to any changes, not only related to Brexit, but to the wider global economy as well. Much has taken place since our last debate; the US trade war, sanctions against Russia, the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal. Is the UK being pushed to the back of the queue?

We are continuing our EU debate series by discussing London’s place in a new world. We welcome back our chair Sir Michael Snyder, alongside another impressive panel of experts:

Professor Tony Travers, London School of Economics, one of the world’s leading social science universities.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe, former Commercial Secretary and Minister of State.

Maureen Penfold, business adviser and Managing Partner at Kingston Smith.
